took fourth in an event in which he

The other record went to Big Bob
Hook who added over a foot to the
old mark in the shot put with a heave
of 45 feet, 11 and 1/8 inches. Tommy
Lawton, who continues to improve
almost daily, was second, less than
six inches behind his teammate.
Michigan's sophomores showed to
good advantage, only one of those
who competed failing to gather a
point. Charlie Decker led the new
men by tying for first place in the
pole vault with senior Dave Cushing
at 12 feet, 8 inches. Decker looked
very strong, as he cleared the bar
with inches to spare. Roaring up
from the rear, sophomore Johnny
Kautz came home third in the half
mile, and might have taken second

Al Smith opened the evening in the
right fashion, as far as Michigan fans
were concerned, finishing ahead of
Walter Arrington of State, Dave Con-
way of Normal, and Wolverine Carl
Culver in that order in the 60-yard
dash. Smitty didn't really extend
himself to win in 6.4 seconds.
The mile run was the hardest fought

Dobson third and Brad Heyl fourth.
Dobson grabbed the lead for the first
couple laps, Brezezinski of Normal

Barrett put on a drive that pulled hirpe
easily into first place. The time was
fairly good-4:21.8.
Kelley Has Busy Night
Loquacious Stan Kelley did himself
proud last night. In addition to push-

hurdles, Stan added a clear-cut win

tying the meet mark, and came back
in the' following race to run a fine
third leg on the mile relay team.
The relay brought together the 1

The Bubble Burst --.
Over the weekend, while most of us
were recovering from concusions aris-
ing from either exams, final grades
or social events, the basketball team
was suffering some not-so-slight bits
of embarrassment on its own hook.
Successive beatings from Northwes-
tern and Indiana finally burst the
Michigan bubble.
At the risk of being criticized for
exploiting ex post facto reasoning
we'll venture that there's nothing so
surprising about the pair of beat-
ings. No, it's not surprising that the
cagers were beaten because this five
was a unique one, a team riding the
crest of a psychological wave. The
wave reached the whitecap stage, not
so much against* the Wildcats as
against Indiana, and the result was
the wash-up on the Conference
The squad this year faced the
biggest handicap a basketball
club can face-a lack of height.
And basketball is one sport where
a good little team can't beat a
good big team-unless something
startling and amazing is present.
But for a while it appeared as
though this te*n had some-
thing startling and amazing. The
something was a feeling that
every point it got was that much
gravy and that maybe it might
get some more.
That much was apparent from the
beginning of the season. Every time
someone scored a basket the entire
team was elated and that elation
generated more enthusiasm and
spirt. The club was carried along
by that spirit-the spirit that mani-

When all this is added up the con-
clusion is that it is possible for Mich-
igan to tie or even more remotely
possible that the Wolverines lead the
Big Ten pack outright, but even the
most optimistic basketball expert
won't venture to make such a bold
prediction. The answer is it's pos-
sible (on paper at least), but in
reality, very highly improbable.
Meet Illinois Again
Michigan still stands a very good
chance of pushing Illinois out of
the third place spot, since it meets
the latter once more before the sea-
son closes, but regardless of where
it finishes, Michigan's "fighting
midgets" will give the fans a real
show whenever they take the floor.
The Wolverines are in a perfect
spot to make life misearble for Pur-
due, Illinois, and the other contend-
ers since from now on they have
everything to win and nothing to
lose. That means the pressure is off,
and anything can happen from this
point to the finish line.
